This virtual conference, planned by AEG’s Geologic and Seismic Hazards (GASH) Technical Working Group, will be convened to discuss methods and case histories related to collecting and analyzing data for characterizing potential hazards in a variety of geologic settings.

Two separate keynote presentations, each delivered by an internationally recognized expert, will address practical examples and lessons learned during evolutionary development of the Senior Seismic Hazard Analysis Committee (SSHAC) process and the field of paleoseismology—both of which involve collection and analysis of data for characterizing geologic and seismic hazards.

In addition to the keynote presentations, the following case histories addressing characterization of potential geologic and seismic hazards will also be discussed:
